We've had a bit of fun with the scientists of Prometheus, and the many, many, many dubious decisions they made in Ridley Scott's quasi-Alien prequel. But is it worth noting that like any highly specialized field, these men and women had to undergo a rigorous training program in order to know what to do when they landed on an alien planet. Would you realize the best thing to do when you meet an angry alien penis-cobra is to stick your face next to it? I don't think so. That's why they're the scientists, and we aren't. Of course, that's why they all died stupidly and we all laughed at them, but whatever. Thanks to Mad-C for the tip.
